Gerrard Chinatown Lion Dance. Times are approximate.  Lions will dance from door to door visiting the merchants here, bringing good luck for the new year, and collecting “money” in return. They will start at 1pm  from the Zhong Hua Men Archway at the corner of Hamilton and Gerrard, one block west of Broadview. These are not performances. The dances are genuine Chinese customs. If you are late, just follow the sound of drums and cymbals. Politicians representing the area should be in attendance. Take the opportunity to look at the stores and restaurants here. Many other Chinatowns and malls around the city will also have dancing lions.
